Default Really nice flashlight

Do any of you guys have a recommendation for a really nice flashlight? My BIL has one that is absolutely amazing, but it was around $400. I did not even know a flashlight could be so bright and compact, but $400 is a little too much for me to spend on a flashlight. Thanks for any ideas, Mike

Look into Streamlight products. They are pricey, but not $400+ pricey. Pelican makes some really good stuff as well.

Not sure what size you want but look into the Streamlight Stinger DS LED. Small, compact, very bright, and has a button on top, and the end for easy access.

Firstly what is the purpose of use for you? Fire fighter, weekender, general daytime service repair. If you want a small, 2 brightness light to use in the house, auto, boat, wear on your belt then I would recommend a Pelican 2360. Google it and look at the complete Pelican line. Also garenteed for life.
And no I don't work for this company, just been very happy with there lites.
Hope this helps
Cheers

Streamlight pen light is the best pocket sized bang for your buck. It's amazing for less than $20

Streamlite recommend here also. I have a Strion HL and love it. Small compact 500/250/125 lumen light that allot of law enforcement uses. Rechargeable AC or DC, and I'm still on the original battery after 6 or 7 years, using it practically every single night of the year. I think I paid around $120 for it.

I didn't know they even still made flashlights?? (kidding)

With the way headlamps are these days I myself no longer have the need for a hand held light, but I'm sure there's plenty of guys that still do.

Remember when you could buy that little black attachment for a mini-mag lite to bite on so it was hands free??? Man that was slick......until headlamps became more popular lol

Have a couple of 1,000 lumen lights from Costco that I paid $15 for. LED's and aluminum tubes. Tough to beat for the cash and we use them everyday for the last 3 years and still going strong.

I have been using the Streamlight Stinger for about 10 years. Have several of them. One in the truck on a charger. One at home and one at work. Haven't bought a battery yet. They are bright enough you could drive a car at night and see good. Before Streamlight I was buying new flashlights every year or so.
